(ANSA) - Venice, August 3 - A court in the northern city of
Padua overturned an expulsion order for a 26-year-old gay
Nigerian who would be at risk of imprisonment if he returned to
his country.
Attorney Carla Favaron from the taxpayers' association
Federcontribuenti said that the court's decision to grant the
man a permit allowing him to stay in Italy was a "watershed
legal victory in the country".
In Nigeria homosexuality is punishable by law with a prison
sentence of up to 14 years.
